Neymar Excited By Barcelona Switch But Focusing On Brazil

The Brazilian striker secured a deal with Barca earlier this week following months of speculation about whether he would leave Santos.

He will link up with his new club later in the summer and is already excited about playing with some of the best players in the world.

However, he is concentrating for now on the Confederations Cup, which will see Brazil go up against Japan, Mexico and Italy in Group A.

Speaking about his switch to Barcelona, the 21-year-old said: "My feeling is like having butterflies in my stomach. I still feel it.

"I will be fulfilling my dream of playing with several stars like Messi, Xavi, (Andres) Iniesta, Dani Alves, Adriano and others.

"I am anxious to get there, but now I have to focus on the Confederations Cup and to help Brazil win the title."
